What our lovely Mums and Dads have to say about Kids College

 

 

Nicky has had Sanne in the babies room since she was only 6 months old. Putting my child into daycare at such a young age wasn’t something I wanted, however, knowing Sanne was with Nicky made everything better. I don’t know how she does it! She is always smiling and calm and we are so grateful to have someone like her looking after our precious girl.

Amy- Couldn’t be happier that Amy joined the babies room when she did. She is such a dedicated and lovely lady! Sanne is lucky to have the care provided by her. Best babies room team out there.

Although I don’t have a child in the toddlers room this year I still adore Jennifer and Courtney. They go out of their way to comfort my kids and I am so grateful for there hard work and dedication. I know Sanne will fall in love with you both and the rest of the Explorers team next year.

Rose and Aleisha- These two ladies are absolute champions! What they accomplish in a day’s work is something else. I appreciate your kind patience, advice and education that you provide to my girl. I look forward to my other children experiencing the same care and dedication you provide.

Denise, Jennifer, Patricia and Natasha- You all don’t go unnoticed. Thank you for everything…there is a reason why I have referred so many family and friends to Kids College Kallaroo ? just love it!

Hi ladies,

I have had a busy day with hospital appointments but while I wait, I just wanted to write a quick message to all the staff (yourselves included) to say how much we appreciate everything you do for our daughter Addison and the passion you all have at running such a wonderful centre.

Every day we are greeted by the girls and they are all so warm and inviting and treat Addison with such a welcoming and happy attitude her spirits are instantly lifted and she runs off to join everyone with such excitement and confidence, every time.

She has learned so much from her carers and teacher Jen, her language and development has sky rocketed since she started. She is so social, creative, confident and nurturing and we can tell those qualities are really being encouraged by the team.

You are all doing amazing jobs and should be really proud of yourselves. It’s never unnoticed and always appreciated by us.

A big thank you to everyone! Kind regards, Lauren and Tom (Addison is in our Toddlers Explorers program after joining us at the beginning of 2018)

A huge thank you to each and every one of you who, on a daily basis, show our children compassion, genuine care, patience and guidance in so many different situations. Leaving your very young child in someone else’s care isn’t an easy decision but watching the way you handle Harrison and his fellow friends at Kids College is nothing short of admirable. It gives us a sense of peace and calm knowing that he will always have a magical day with you, learn so much from you all and be shown genuine warmth and care in situations when he needs comfort and guidance. We appreciate you all so much and thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  You all make such a big difference in our lives. 

(Harrison joined us in Babies Discoverers in 2016, has enjoyed Toddlers Explorers program and is now in 3 year Kindy Adventurers program) Regards Natasha Doab

Hello Kids College team! Happy Early Childhood Educators Day!

We cannot thank you enough for the excellent care you offer our little Lachlan. Everyday, we see your influence on him, and really appreciate the fact that he’s offered such a high standard of guidance and learning with your team. Jennifer and Denise, thanks for addressing our requests so thoughtfully and organizing the events that you do to make the days so special for the kids, and the adult events just as enjoyable!

Teacher Aleisha and Teacher Rose, Lachlan speaks about you both all the time! We’ve loved the portfolios that have been put together, and totally appreciate your level of patience to assist all those little guys with their arts and crafts! What a remarkable job you do.

Lachlan will tell us random stories about Teachers Jennifer and Courtney and Alana and Kate, and it’s also lovely for us to be greeted by your smiling faces when it could otherwise be a bit sad to leave Lockie behind in the morning. Yet, when I go to pick him up, he’s often “not ready to leave yet, mama”, which is a reflection of how comfortable he is in all your company. (Side note that he also misses Teacher “Rika” since she moved away!).

And also a big thank you to Patricia and Natasha in the kitchen. Tuesday’s dinner prep is always less stressful because I know he’s already been well fed earlier in the day! Thank you again! We will certainly miss you all next year when Lockie starts pre-primary, but I have a feeling he will happily remember his time at Kids College! Lisa and Tony (mum and dad to Lachlan who joined Kids College two years ago and is now in our 4 Year Kindy Imagineers program)

Dear wonderful staff at Kids College
Thank you thank you so much for being so fantastic with our daughter Indigo.
She has had the pleasure of being in all the rooms now and lucky enough to have Aleisha twice now as her teacher.
Honestly we really appreciate your hard work and kind caring approach to your job and our child. I only have two kids and don’t know how you do it!
Thanks for everything and going above and beyond with all your hard work and the different activities you do with the kids.
We absolutely love the artwork and craft as well.
Thanks again. Kind Regards Jess Marsh (mum to Indigo who joined us in March 2016 and has enjoyed her time in Babies Discoverers, Toddlers Explorers and is now in 3 year olds Adventurers program)

Hi Jennifer & Kids College Team,

Nate has been with yourselves for almost 2 years now. It is clear to me that all the staff enjoy their jobs and put a lot of effort into what they do not only because the turnover is very few and far between but because each and everyday Nate surprises us with new things he has learnt. I really do take my hat off to all you ladies who can handle such a high volume of children. The energy it takes to look after 1 child is enough so I cannot imagine how you all cope. Thank you for everything you do and thank you for teaching our son to become the smart little cookie he is.

Kind regards Elisia Siddall (mum to Nate who joined us in Babies room Discoverers program and is now enjoying our Toddlers Explorers program)

We think you all do an amazing job at caring for all the kids.
It makes it easier for us to go to work and know that our son is watched, fed, educated and looked after with such care and consideration.
Thank you for putting so much love into your job. (mum of Arie who enjoys our Toddlers room Explorers program)

Hi Jennifer and the Kids College Team,

I can’t thank you all enough for the amazing job you do every day with our little ones. Patrick is my first child and Kids College is my first exposure to child care. I am so in awe of the passion, patience, dedication and caring attitude you all take towards our children. It warms my heart knowing that Patrick genuinely loves coming and spending time at Kids College, and I know it comes down to the wonderful teachers there. It’s not easy returning to the workforce after spending 24/7 with your baby for the first 18 months, so knowing how happy he is there, and how much he gets out of it, means the world to myself and Ryan. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Much love from Vanessa and Ryan Turner **Vanessa wipes tear from her eye as she gets quite emotional discussing anything Patrick-related ? ** (mum and dad of Patrick who enjoys our Toddlers Explorers program)

Happy early childhood educators day
To Nicky, Amy, Jennifer, Courtney, Maddie, Rachel, Indie, Kayla and Olivia (as well as everyone else at Kids college)
A huge thank you for all the input and influence you have had over Oliver since he started with Kids college at the beginning of the year. In the time he has been with you, he has been loved, nurtured, learnt and developed into such a clever little boy. He enjoys coming to ‘school’ every day and seeing all of your faces.
Thank you for all the care you put into your jobs every day:-) Thanks! Sherri (mum of Oliver who joined our Babies room Discoverers program and is now enjoying our 2 Year Old Explorers program)

Dear Courtney, Jen, Maddie, India, Olivia & Rachael (I hope I haven’t forgotten anyone, mummy brain but this message is for all the lovely ladies),
Simone LOVES ‘school’ and it’s an absolute joy to drop her off every Tuesday & Wednesday knowing that she’ll be in great hands, have lots of fun and learn loads. She has made many friends in the other toddlers but also the carers. She talks about you all often and with great enthusiasm. What you do is amazing and so important. All our thanks not only on this special appreciation day but every day. Simone, Ray, Siri & Sebastian (who can't wait to join Nikki & Amy next year!) (Simone started in Babies Discoverers last year and is now enjoying her learning in the Toddlers Explorers program)

WOW !!!!! Where do I even start??? I think you are ALL amazing! The love, kindness & patience you have for the children is beautiful. As a parent it’s hard to leave your child with someone, but from the start I was completely comfortable and happy knowing that Jake is so loved and cared for while at KC. Jake wakes up every morning and asks if he is going to school today and is disappointed when it’s not one of his days. So that says it all that our little boy is so excited and happy to go to school (long may it continue). You are all special and amazing at what you do! I know we are extremely great full for the amazing job you do with Jake. And we are happy when we can refer new parents to KC Keep up the fantastic job you are all doing !! And know that you are all appreciated very much xx (mum to Jake who started in Toddlers room Explorers program and has graduated to the 3 year old Adventurers program this year)

I just want to thank all the educators & staff at Kids College for making Caolan feel so at home.

It was a hard decision to return to work knowing that I have very little family support here & also with Caolan being our first child but I know that he is well looked after at Kids College.

To Nicky & Amy, who nurture & care for Caolan every day, I know my little boy is in good, kind hands. He has so much fun with you two & all his little friends, it so great to hear about all they do every day.

To Courtney, Jennifer, Aleisha & until recently Marijke and all the other carers whom I rarely get to meet who mind Caolan at the early drop offs and the late collections, thank you for everything.

I love the way Kids College is constantly improving not only its facilities but also what is best for the development of all our little ones. We really appreciate all that you do. Love from The Buckley’s (Caolan started in our Babies room Discoverers program this year)

A huge thank you to each and every one of you who, on a daily basis, show our children compassion, genuine care, patience and guidance in so many different situations. Leaving your very young child in someone else’s care isn’t an easy decision but watching the way you handle Harrison and his fellow friends at Kids College is nothing short of admirable. It gives us a sense of peace and calm knowing that he will always have a magical day with you, learn so much from you all and be shown genuine warmth and care in situations when he needs comfort and guidance. We appreciate you all so much and thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You all make such a big difference in our lives.

We’d like to say a big thank you to all the staff at Kids College for taking such good care of Jackson. When he arrives in the morning the girls are sensitive to his needs and help him settle in. In the kindy room Rose & Aleisha do such a good job of taking care of him and as parents we really appreciate the attention and sensitivity to the extra challenges his coeliac disease brings. When asked what’s good about his teachers Jackson said “I like teacher Rose because she plays with me”. Kind regards, Adele (Jackson’s Mum)

Thank you to all the fabulous KC Team Members—we are so thankful for all of you! Your patience, professionalism, creativity, and concern for our boys has particularly impressed us. Hope y’all feel duly celebrated! Love the Fords ? (mum to Watson who has graduated to the 3 year Kindy Adventurer program and baby Brandt has started his learning journey in our Babies Discoverers room)

To Rose and Aleisha,
I just want to tell you how much you have been amazing with Fabrice. He went from a shy little boy to, what I now see, a big boy full of confidence in so many ways. He absolutely loves going to daycare to see his friend and his teachers. It is hard work looking after children (even when it is your own!) and I really appreciate how much love and effort you girls put on our children. Well done ?

And a special mention to the rest of the team. I’m always amazed to see the girls knowing the name of each little person coming to daycare and ready to comfort the one who needs a little cuddle. You are such a great team. Cathy (mum to Fabrice in our 3 Year Adventurers program after having enjoyed our 2 Year olds Explorers program)

Dear Kids College team
You are such an amazing group of girls. Always so welcoming and friendly when we arrive in the morning.
If it wasn’t for you, leaving Chloe at the daycare would be so much harder.
Chloe absolutely adores you all and has a particular bond with Kayla and Maddie who is sadly no longer there.
Jen you are so organised and you can see you really takes the time to make sure everything is just as it should be for the day.
Thank you to all the carers who make Kids College such a lovely place for Chloe to come. Kind regards Angela Howes (mom of Chloe who is two years old and enjoys our Toddlers Explorers program and joined Kids College at the beginning of this year)

Hi Jennifer
Just a quick note to say how much we appreciate the lovely ladies of the toddlers room, Jennifer, Courtney, Rachel, India and Kayla and Olivia. Sunny always looks forward to her days at Kids College (well most days) to see her teachers and friends. You really have created a fun and nurturing environment. I love hearing about what she’s learnt during her day and seeing her little creations. I know a lot of planning and work must go into making each day so much fun, and we really appreciate it! Thank you Victoria Wills (mum to Sunny who is two years old and enjoys our Toddlers room Explorers program, she started at Kids College in our Babies Discoverers program last year)

To my Tuesday & Wednesday Mums aka Nikki (bikky) and Amy. It won’t be too long before I am in the “big boy” play area and won’t get to hang out with you both as much so I am taking this opportunity to say a big thank you ! For all your patience, your kindness and just being there for me when mum and dad can’t. I hope you have enjoyed our time together as much as me and wish you all the best with my future replacement. Love From, Hayden

With no experience of child care and the Australian system in relation to children we were a little nervous about leaving Scarlett at daycare. That was put to rest immediately. She is just so happy to go and to do all of the wonderful activities. She truly loves all of the staff that look after her and we see this as her ‘other family’.
Scarlett has developed so much in her time at Kids College and all of her positives are encouraged. We saw real improvements in areas that she was not so great at such as sharing and some basic rules (such as hat on to go outside) as well.
We do not want to single out any individuals as we know what a team effort it all is. The staff preparing the food are just as important for Scarlett’s development as the ones playing games with her and we truly thank all of you.
Thanks for everything please let us know if there are any things that we can do to help out.

Jim and Erica Moore. ( dad and mum of Scarlett who is turning three soon and enjoys our 3 Year Kindy Adventurers program)

I hope this makes it in time for your teacher appreciation day today!!

We are truly so very grateful for all of the work and love each of you put into looking after James each day he is with you. From the moment we stepped foot inside Kids College, it felt like Disneyland. It felt like we had found a space that rather than just simply ‘leaving James in care’ for a day, we were able to offer him a fun, education and action packed experience that we simply wouldn’t be able to provide him with at home. I have always been baffled that from the very first week, we would walk in with James, all of the teachers in his room would then say, “James, you’re here!” as if it’s the best thing that’s happened to them that day!

Of course, Teacher Jennifer and Courtney, you are both outstanding leaders – caring, thoughtful, generous, kind and I’m yet to see you have a bad day, I don’t know how you do it. There’s no one I would rather entrust our son into care with. Also, Kayla (and Maddie) have been absolutely outstanding, their genuine joy when they see James and in house fighting over ‘who gets cuddles first’ is something as a parent you can only ever hope for.

As you know, we had plans to relocate overseas in 2019, but after further discussions, we have now decided to remain in Perth for a few more years. A huge part of this decision was that we would need to leave Kids College and knowing how at home James is there, it just didn’t seem fair on him. It is true that you are our extended family and I think the teachers enthusiasm for watching James grow, develop and learn is something only outshone by our own excitement for the little man he is becoming.

Words cannot thank you enough for all you invest into our family, we are so very thankful and so excited to be enrolled again for another year of playing with trucks, going down the slides and dancing when no one is looking.

With much love and so much heartfelt appreciation, Laura, Andy & Jamesy x (mum and dad of James in our Toddlers Explorers program and were very happy to start at Kids College this year)
